The Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) typically holds public hearings twice annually to render a vote on granting accredited status. These hearings are in the spring at CPSE’s Excellence Conference and in the summer at IAFC’s Fire Rescue International. Due to COVID-19, CFAI has issued revised site visit and hearing protocols through the end of 2021.

Below are two sample accreditation hearing videos so your agency can become familiar with the CFAI hearing process.
